UPDATE: May. 17, 2022, 11:30 a.m. EDT We've updated this post with the best deals from across the Apple universe, including markdowns on the 45mm Series 7 and 2022 iPad Air.

You could really kill some time trying to dissect the iron grasp Apple has on the general population, but when it comes down to it, its products look good, work well, and stay cutting-edge — of course people like them. Whether your favorite day of the year is its annual September reveal event or you just want a solid computer no matter the brand, Apple's got you covered. Sure, it is a little notorious for its higher prices, but we've rounded up the best deals on iPads, AirPods, and more to help you out. Check them out below.

Our pick: 2022 iPad Air
$554.87 at Amazon (save $44.13)

Why we like it

Check out Mashable's official review of the 2022 iPad Air.

Want the power of the iPad Pro without the high price tag? The 2022 iPad Air's M1 chip has got you covered, and it's back down to its lowest price ever, despite being on the market for just under a couple of months. The starting storage could be a little bit bigger and this new low price only applies to the pink iPad at the time of writing, but as our review says, "it's still the iPad most people should buy." And the purple and space gray are still $40 off.

Our pick: iPhone 13 Mini at Verizon
$0 with an eligible trade-in on a select unlimited plan (save $700)

Why we like it

Check out Mashable's official review of the iPhone 13 Mini.

Like most phone deals on this list, having a decent trade-in is essential to scoring the most bang for your buck. So why the iPhone 13 Mini? Well, you likely won't need a brand new phone to get the price tag as close to $0 as possible, you're not trading-in for an outdated model, and you get at least 128GB of storage, nice battery life, and cinematic mode without the huge price tag. You can also grab this deal at AT&T.

Apple Watch deals

Why we like it

After over a month at its lowest price ever, the base model of the Series 7 is back up in price. But if you were looking to snag a deal on the most feature-heavy Apple Watch, don't worry — the 45mm Series 7 with cellular connectivity dropped down to its lowest price ever, at a full $100 off its MSRP. That means all the benefits of the original, and you won't have to tote your phone around to send and receive texts, calls, and emails.

Why we like it

This is not the week to grab AirPods, but it is the week to check out Apple's other headphones. The Beats Solo3's have dropped to nearly 40% off its original price, which though not its lowest price ever, is still a pretty sweet deal for headphones with 40 hours of battery life and Apple's W1 chip for easy connectivity. They're not the fanciest, and they don't come with ANC, but they do look and sound great, all without breaking the bank.
